The Impact of the 2007 U.S.-EU Open Skies Air Transport Agreement

cover image
On March 2, 2007, the United States concluded a comprehensive air transport agreement with the European Union (EU) and its 27 member countries. It will be provisionally applied beginning March 30, 2008. This paper examines key elements of the agreement and looks at how it will affect the movement of passengers and cargo between the United States and Europe. Research cited in the paper estimates that approximately $12 billion annually will accrue to transatlantic airlines and related industries as a result of the agreement. Some 80,000 new jobs could potentially be generated. For consumers, the agreement will bring more competition and additional direct routes to more European cities.
